DESCRIPTION: The mission of Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS) “is to provide free legal assistance to as many low-income families as possible to help them secure the most basic necessities of life. GBLS plays a unique role in the social service delivery system. It is the agency to which other providers refer clients when no one else can help and legal assistance is needed.” Join us for a visit to GBLS where we will learn more about the impactful advocacy work going on at GBLS, meet and hear from staff attorneys, and take a tour of the organization.
